RSS es parte de la familia de los formatos XML desarrollado específicamente para todo tipo de sitios que se actualicen con frecuencia y por medio del cual se puede compartir la información y usarla en otros sitios web o programas. A esto se le conoce como redifusión web o sindicación web (una traducción incorrecta, pero de uso muy común).
Este acrónimo se usa para referirse a los siguientes estándares:

* Really Simple Syndication (RSS 2.0)
* Además es usual que el término RSS sea usado indistintamente para referirse a cualquiera de los formatos RSS o Atom.
